The king rejoices in your strength, LORD.1 How great is his joy in the victories you give!22
You have granted him his heart's desire3 and have not withheld the request of his lips.a3
You came to greet him with rich blessings and placed a crown of pure gold4 on his head.54
He asked you for life, and you gave it to him-- length of days, for ever and ever.65
Through the victories7 you gave, his glory is great; you have bestowed on him splendor and majesty.86
Surely you have granted him unending blessings and made him glad with the joy9 of your presence.107
For the king trusts in the LORD;11 through the unfailing love12 of the Most High13 he will not be shaken.148
Your hand will lay hold15 on all your enemies; your right hand will seize your foes.
When you appear for battle, you will burn them up as in a blazing furnace. The LORD will swallow them up in his wrath, and his fire will consume them.1610
You will destroy their descendants from the earth, their posterity from the human race.1711
Though they plot evil18 against you and devise wicked schemes,19 they cannot succeed.
You will make them turn their backs20 when you aim at them with drawn bow.
Be exalted21 in your strength, LORD;22 we will sing and praise your might.
